✨NEW EPISODE!✨Join author/illustrator Thyra Heder for #StoryMakers as she shares her new #picturebook SAL BOAT: A Boat By Sal. It’s a book about a boy who is determined to build a boat of his own on his own — but Sal soon learns that any act of creation requires community & collaboration.
⛵️Thyra created this book for her independent-minded nephew who loves to build things, so the illustrations are full of people & places dear to Thyra. Look at the book through her eyes and discover the stories and memories hidden in her beautiful paintings!
📣Kids! How many times can you find Thyra’s niece and nephew’s dog Louie on the pages of SAL BOAT? Tell us your answer in the comments section below the video: www.kidlit.tv/storymakers-with-thyra-heder-sal-boat-a-boat-by-sal/ ... See MoreSee Less
